Felt him setting a Magic record deserved its own thread. Also has a personal best 20 points to go along with those 29 boards. Like I said in another thread, he needs to se more minutes. He is only 22, he should be good for 35-40 a night

Dwight who? :lol:

I'm in Afghanistan so I haven't been able to see any games this season. Is this Vucevic guy as good as his numbers look in the box score? I feel like I haven't seen him talked about as much as the numbers say he should be. Is there some giant hole in his game that I can't see from the box score or is this guy legit?

Yes, he's that good. The Magic aren't a very good team, so no Magic player gets much attention. His skills are amazing, and I'm sure the Magic training staff will have him working on strength this summer.

Dwight and Shaq had 12 combined years to have a rebounding game like that.

Vuc did what they couldn't accomplish in his second month as a Magic Man.

Vuc is a beast.

Vucevic is already the third best center we've ever had, that's how good he is. He is a double double machine and should be getting the ball more then he is.

I'm really surprised Dwight and Shaq couldn't beat 29. Here's to the future!

29 boards is extremely hard to do. That little 4-5 rebound burst on one possession helped too. Congrats to Vuc. He's going to be a pretty damn good center.

Even though we lost, I'm happy for Vuc... And I still love re-posting this quote every time he has a great game lol

"I'm not here to replace Dwight," said Vucevic, who arrived in the mammoth Howard trade, through the Philadelphia 76ers. "Dwight's specific in his way. I'm totally different. I'm more of a skilled player with a high basketball IQ."

Damn proud of Vucci Mane tonight! I am really enjoying watching this kid grow and improve his game. He's only 22 and hasn't even come close to hitting his ceiling yet. Getting him when no one expected us to go after him only makes me even more excited about the plans Henny has for this team.

This guy is getting better and better.

Awesome stuff Vucevic!

Despite the loss, it was one of those games that I came out deflated rather than upset at the loss, but much happier after a hour or so because of how the team performed, Vucci's record went a long way to helping with that.
